Before you Go...
Before you either go research these wonderful "lavender" stars or write an angry comment saying that one night with someone of the same gender doesn't make you straight or gay, understand that I am using broad terms and stereo types, mainly because that's all I have to go off, so few people were brave enough to "come out" that I have to rely on these sweeping terms to paint a picture at all. Anywho, hope you all enjoyed our ride! I know I did! Feel free to click on any of the links above, most will take you to the film I'm referring to on YouTube, where you can watch it free (free I say!), the rest will take you to other silent film blogs with articles on what I'm referring to. So have fun, explore, and, dare I say it, be GAY!
